It has been an age since I picked up my crochet hooks and made something I'm happy with. I've been dabbling with some new ideas but nothing has been turning out like I hoped. I wanted to get more shape into my amigurumis and have been trying out ways to make legs and arms with joints in without sewing or using toy joints. I wanted the crochet to do the work and I was sure there must be a way of making a natural bend in a leg or arm. Well yesterday I had a bit of a eureka moment and after much trial and error I give you my sparkly unicorn.
As I've finished it today I though I'd add him to 1st Unique gifts homemade Monday blog link up which is here
The inspiration for making a unicorn was a strange one but this is the picture my friend posted on pintrest. It just makes me giggle so much that I could resist doing this :)
